Description
Enliven is part of Presbyterian Support and in Otago we offer a range of services built around the philosophy that with the right support, ageing can be a positive experience.

Although we no longer provide Home Support Services in Otago, we are able to organise short-term respite care in one of our 7 rest homes, and Enliven Individualised Funding where you manage the resources you have been allocated for home and disability support. To learn more about this service call 03 477 7115.

We believe that feeling supported and secure, and being as active and involved as possible, are very important if you wish to remain living in your own home.

To that end, Enliven offers:
Enliven HomeShare - Hosts in Alexandra and Cromwell offer day respite for older people with memory loss. The day is spent in conversation, activity or sharing quiet times. A nourishing hot meal is made and shared with the volunteer, as is morning and afternoon tea. To find out more, contact the manager of Ranui Home & Hospital, Alexandra 448 8280
